What is the Capital Improvement Plan?
The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is Tigard's 5-year plan for matching the
cost of large-scale improvements—like fixing roads, water and sewer systems—to
anticipated revenues, like taxes and bonds.
What Makes a Project CIP-eligible?
The city defines a CIP project as:
The timeline for CIP comments and project suggestions is as follows:
- Any public facility project that improves or adds value to Tigard's infrastructure
- Costs $50,000 or more
- Has a useful life or extends the useful life of a facility for five years or more
- August 1 until September 30, 2013—Project suggestion period.
- November and December, 2013—All submitted projects (includes citizen suggestions and
projects that are already in the current CIP) are evaluated and prioritized by staff, council, and citizens
from the Transportation Advisory Committee and the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board.
- Mid February, 2014—CIP is submitted to the City Manager as part of the proposed budget.
- First council meeting in June, 2014—City Council adoption of Capital Improvement Plan.
In November and December, a CIP team consisting of directors and staff from Public Works,
Community Development and Finance will begin evaluating and prioritizing projects submitted
for the FY 2015-19 program. At the same time that staff are prioritizing the projects,
Council and citizen advisory committees will also be prioritizing projects.
Projects come from three sources: the existing CIP, master plans, and Tigard residents.
Not all capital projects are funded due to limited budgets. Instead, the city
allocates money to projects that are considered high priority or have available
grant funding. Typically, the further out projects are scheduled beyond the
current year, the less likely that immediate funding will be available for construction.
The current CIP includes the following projects:
- 72nd Avenue/Dartmouth Street Intersection Improvement
- Main Street Green Street Retrofit
- Pacific Highway/Gaarde Street/McDonald Street Intersection Improvements
